Connecting a third-party router to your home network Before you can connect a third-party router to your Verizon network, you must first change your Verizon modem, gateway, or router to bridge mode.  In bridge mode, the Verizon hardware becomes a pass-through device allowing your third party router to function properly.

Use the illustrations below to select the type of Verizon hardware you're using. The steps for changing the Verizon device to bridge mode vary according to the type of hardware you're using.
